He looks younger!
A rehash is plagiarism, thus illegal. And just because you didn't see the 86 movie elements does not mean they are there. The site from Paramount stated that TLK was based on the 86 movie and Dark Awakening.
I do want to see that list eventually though!
Ah finally there are still members that what this thread is about. Here have my thumbs up
And yes his face does look less complex than in AOE
Does anyone remember what this thread was about?
I do, it's about Drift. Then someone asked me what G1 elements fans complained about, which lead to the proof of that someone does complain about G1 elements.
Anyway, about the topic; Someone mentioned that ILM did it to make animating his face easier, and that too is a possibility. I do though remember people complained about his face in AOE, and that is what makes me wonder has something to do with the change.
id need pics for a comparison as i dont recall drift being in tlk too much to remember what he looked like other than he was red which was pretty neat!
The only thing I think the 86 movie and TLK have in common is that both Hot Rod and Unicron are known about after most of the old cast bots are dead or missing.
There are many scenes those movies have in common, but I think we'll leave that for another thread. My review even shows some of those elements.
To the topic:
I think you have to wait for the movie to be released on DVD/Blu-Ray for that.
i noticed it right away. it took me out of the film at first. trust me.
im gonna be back with some comparison clips later
He's just older, that's all, Prime and Bee age frim movie to movie too.
yeah and that happened in R.I.D, Armada and plenty of other shows. TLK being heavly based on the 86 film is invalid. When was there ever a prision scene for cons in the 86 film? when were there knights and other medevil bots in the 86 film? When did prime become evil in the 86 film? when did hot rod have a french accent in the 86 film? when did a group of humans called TRF want to kill transformers in the 86 film? When was unicron earth in the 86 film? I dont recall the autobots ever going to space in TLK? The whole argument is invalid.
So Drift "ages" by getting an all new, simpler face design, but Crosshairs and Hound don't?
Drift's face was the only part of his design I liked. It was more G1 looking than Baymovie. I wish Ironhide, Ratchet, Hound, Jetfire, Hot Rod and Starscream's faces were like it.
Shrugs, maybe they do also. Drift just seemed a little pudgier.
It's okay, I know it's not your fault. Have a nice day
That really doesn't make any sense at all.
However, given how complicated his face was in AOE, and the reduced role he has in TLK, alongside many more complicated robots, I think the theory that his old face was too complex to animate given how little we see it is most logical than the character arbitrarily aging when no one else does.
Anyone noticed that aoe deluxe drift has the last knight drift face and the Last knight deluxe drift has ape face or is it just me
I'm pretty sure it changed, too. As to why, who knows? Hound changed everything BUT his face. Bee somehow decided to look less like a bug, but more like a sports car.
The real reason is poor writing + desire to sell toys = arbitrary, miscellaneous happenings.
